thing with bill clinton and younger clinton showed more personality. bush the younger remained personally popular until the recession kicked in. right now in a popularity poll, president obama is ahead of mitt romney by throw three-points according to a new survey. after next week's debate it could change dramatically. there is no question about obama and romney realize they must come across as nice guys that is why they go on entertainment programs. >> we're is very happy you came on this a mrs. obama and brought your date? >> i brought him. he had a few minutes in his schedule. >> i told folks i'm supposed to be eye candy. >> what is your guilty pleasure. >> a donut for me. >> peanut butter sandwiches. >> what does he wear for bed? >> bill: some candidates believe that they shouldn't be dealing with trivia when the economy is awful and there is turmoil in the middle east but they do what they have to do. talking points understand that americans want their leaders to be accessible. they wanted to know that powerful people understand that. that is why the president's campaign h
trouble. blaming the continuing economic mess on president bush is hollow and cynical. it is the president's policies now that are driving economic results. 45 months is more than enough time to reignite the powerful economic engine. more that be enough time. you can't solve all all all the problems in that time. but you can certainly gain some economic momentum it. that has not happened. here are the facts. median income for american households down about 5,000 bucks in five years. very bad. health insurance premiums up 18% in three years. and going higher under obama care. awful situation. gas prices up 106% since mr. obama took office. a complete disationer. national debt up $5.4 trillion under the president and going higher. a catastrophe and while salaries for workers are flat or down, corporate profits are up, signaling more economic imbalance in america. now, it used to be that economic steps like those would doom, doom an incumbent president. that's not happening this year. barack obama is not even conceding that his policies haven't worked. he is essentially saying they will work
into trouble president bush lowered the cap gains and then we got out of trouble because more money came in. and led to the highest amount of federal tax revenue in history, juan. >> did we get out of trouble? >> bill: no, no. no. because we had the wars and we had the war on terror and all of that. but the facts are the facts. highest amount of tax revenue ever flowing into washington came under president bush when he lowered the capital gains tax. now, mary katharine, am i misguided here? am i misstating something here? >> no. i think you are right. i mean, barack obama is proposing through and he has through the buffet deal before that we should basically jack up the capital gains tax which would discourage investment. >> bill: you are disagreeing with juan. >> and furthermore barack obama was asked about this in a debate with hillary clinton in 2008 where the moderator said it has been shown tax revenue goes up when the capital gains rate is lower. isn't that something you would be okay with? for fairness i would like to jack it up. >> for fairness now, mary katharine, romney dodges the
. >> if a president of either party, i don't care whether it was jimmy carter or bill clinton or george bush or ronald reagan or george h.w. bush had had a terrorist incident and gotten on an airplane after saying something and flown off to a fund raisener las vegas, they would have been crucified. it would have been, it should have been barack -- equivalent for barack obama of george bush's flying over katrina moment. >> but nothing was said at all. and nothing will be said. >> with us now is mr. caddell. so you think this is an organized press suppression of this story? >> well, organized -- whether it's organized is a straight conspiracy, everyone is in on it and doing it and it's a purposeful conscious effort to suppress news that might help obama. we have gone down a slippery slope here. look, bill, we have had liberal bias or bias in the press for a long time. for many years. but it's gotten worse starting in 2008. now we have a press that actively engages in the re-election. putting out a narrative that romney is a loser, you know running polls, they are using like telling n.i.v. adding on romn
in 1980 when i was the young executive director of texans for reagan/bush, the first week of october a poll came out saying that carter was beating reagan in texas. and i can remember all the meetings i had to go to and have my posterior chewed by the leaders of the campaign about what the heck were we going to do about it? and of course texas was comfortably won by 13 points basically four weeks, five weeks later. you have got to be pairful about these polls down with scientific information. >> bill: i don't have to be careful i report honestly. the rest of the media isn't going to be careful because they are rooting for barack obama and it props them up. in ohio. >> in 2008, the democrats had 8 points more turnout than the republicans did. and in 2004 the republicans had a 5. turn out advantage. democrats a points less than the republicans. in 2000, the democrats had 1 point more in turnout than did the republicans. now, cbs "new york times" has 9 points more democrats than republicans. so they say democrats are even more helped up. republicans less. it may not be 8. but it is some
, not one country in which relations are healthier or more constructive than under george w. bush, and that was a pretty low standard. >> bill: what do you say, colonel hunt? >> i think the specificity of the policy when you look at libya in which we wanted a lower american profile with the weakest profile we've had security since 1979 first ambassador we had killed failed. in afghanistan issues we have people training, killing us. that is not -- and the surge was supposed to crush the taliban. the commander on the ground reports says the taliban is back. he talked about al-qaeda. >> bill: the taliban really we want away. let's look at afghanistan and iran in particular and then libya at the end of the discussion. in afghanistan, you have a lot of friendly so-called friendly, but it's really taliban fanatics infiltrating because as one of the soldiers told me last week, you can buy afghan army uniforms at any marketplace in afghanistan. they're around. so if you want to dress up like an afghany soldier and you're a taliban or al-qaeda terrorist, you can do that and walk in and blo
